Sigmund Thun Klamm

Experience for the whole family

In the Late Ice Age about 14,000 years ago, the Kaprunertal was covered by a mighty glacier. Langsam talwärts fließend bearbeitete er die harten Kalkglimmerschieferfelsen des Mais- und Bürgkogels. The melted glacier left a valley incision through which the Kapruner Ache flowed down the valley. More than 30 Meters deep and 320 Meters long, the Kapruner Ache Has “cut” your Way through the Kapruner Valley. Heute ist die Sigmund Thun Klamm und der Klammsee ein Ausflugsziel für die gesamte Familie – besser gesagt für Jung und Alt und auch fast zu jeder Jahreszeit. So hat es zum Beispiel seinen ganz eigenen Charme im Spätherbst am Klammsee entlang zu schländern, durch das abgefallene Laub der Bäume. In summer you can meet not only locals but also some tourists – the gorge is also a real treasure of Kaprun.

The rocky height of the Bürgkogel

The rocky height of the Bürgkogel, which rises on the right flank of the gorge in the middle of the valley, offered protection to the first settlers of the Kaprunertal about 4,000 years ago. The Bronze Age use of copper may have been the basis of the settlement. The gorge secured the inhabitants of the Bürgkogel for more than 3,000 years the west side of their settlement area.

Sigmund-Thun-Klamm

Inspired by the history of the Sigmund-Thun-Klamm and the adjacent Bürgkogel, the association VSF-Kaprun decided at the founding meeting on 15 May 1991 to reopen the Sigmund-Thun-Klamm. After 5 months of construction, the new jetty was reopened to visitors on 29 August 1992. The Bridge through the Sigmund Thun gorge, together with the natural history course around Lake Klamm and the Showroom of the Kaprun-Hauptstufe power house, forms a Centrepiece of the “Bürgkogel Klammsee” recreational space & recreation Space.
